This Designer’s Collection Is Our Autumn Aesthetic

With autumn here, there is a distinct sense of excitement in the air. We’re not just talking about the changing weather – this is the season to brush away any lingering sartorial cobwebs, but the truth is that wading through the new season trends can be more than a little overwhelming.
That’s why we’re looking to a brand that is doing autumn better than most: kate spade new york. In February, the brand took the AW19 shows by storm with a fun, feminine collection packed with riotous colour-blocking, playful patterns and a retro 1940s-meets-1970s aesthetic.
Think modern day It Girl goes vintage shopping in the wardrobe of a glamorous socialite and comes out decked in flirty satin dresses and lace-up knee-high boots, slick trouser suits and drool-worthy coats. The cherry on top? The bags – from mini cross-body chain wallets in leopard and snake prints to croc-embossed top handle satchels.
We haven’t stopped thinking about the collection since so now the weather is cooling, we’re taking it as our guide for the autumn trends to follow.
